project includes the coordination to [speaker not understood] working collaboratively towards the operation of the two runways. the contract provides departure management services that allow for the efficient control of departure traffic on the two runways that are open during the construction period. the airport's contract with parsons brinckerhoff is the result of a request -- a competitive credit for proposals process and has been previously amended by the airport commission to increase both the costs and to extend the turn to the existing contract will bring the total contract amount above the $10 million level requiring board approval for a new total contract amount of $13.7 million. the budget analyst recommend approval of this mod if i and ation and i'd be happy to answer any questions. >> okay, thank you, ms. wagoner. mr. rose, why don't we jump right to your report. >> yes, mr. chairman, supervisor mar. on page 55, table 3 shows the

4:04 pm
city scape by john king this spring and i thought i'd take the opportunity to use that visual for you. it's a very cool building. and the architecture has been described by mr. king as moorish make believe. so, i figured how many times will i get the opportunity to say that at this committee? so i had to bring that to your attention. [laughter] >> we're very excited to bring you what really is a partnership agreement between the city and the san francisco unified school district. this is actually the largest single leased premises by the city as tenant in the general fund family. county adult assistance program and the cal fresh food stamps is located here. we've been in this location since 1993. it was a creative financing agreement between a third-party ownership, a lease to sfusd and a sublease to the city. then in the end of august 2013, after the dee feesance of the
4:05 pm
debt, the school district became the owner of the property ~. so, now we are here for a direct lease between the school district, its owner and the city as tenant. and the terms i think work very well for both organizations. so, let me outline those briefly for you. this is an 11-year 10-month term taking us to april 30th, 2026. the lease rate starts at $22 per square foot. it rises to 28.50 per square foot in the last two years of the term. the city will provide a capital infusion of approximately $2.5 million. that will be matched by a capital infusion from the school district of $3.5 million, used to refresh this now 20 some year old asset in terms of our occupancy in the building. much of the school district's contribution goes toward energy efficiency and sustainability of the asset. that's going to lower operating and utility costs, and the structure of the lease has the
4:06 pm
city responsible for those costs. so, that's why we see this as really a partnership agreement, each benefiting from the improvements made to the facility. there are two five-year extensions of term. those would be at 95% of fair market rent, which is described in the lease agreement, and there's also an early termination provision. after a period of 10 years six months in occupancy, just in case there is some other opportunity we desire to explore. while we don't suggest this is a class a asset, i do want to note that those rates ranging from $22 a foot to start and 28.50, you've seen me here before. you know what the rate structure is, particularly in the civic center area and the soma area. the cheapest thing we can find tends to be in the high 30s, low 40s, upper 40s, low 50s per square foot. so, we're in the 20s. so, city is certainly happy with this agreement.
4:07 pm
i want to thank the school district for their efforts. cfo is here. if you have questions from their point of view, they really worked hard with us to put this together. it took a good year to negotiate these terms and we're pleased to have a 12-year agreement to bring before you. >> congratulations, mr. updike. okay, no questions for mr. rose, we'll move to your report on item 15. >> yes, mr. chairman, supervisor mar. on page 58 we know the total rent over the ten-year lease term is 35,256,045. that's shown on table 2 of page 59 of our report. we also report, supervisors, on page 60 that in the first three years of the lease the sfusd and hsa will also spend up to $6 million on capital improvements. sfusd will contribute up to 3.5 million and hsa will contribute up to 2.5 million and that's
4:08 pm
described on page 60 of our report. we recommend that you approve this resolution. >> okay, thank you, mr. rose. no other question, we'll open this up to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item 15? seeing none, public comment is closed. [gavel] >> supervisor mar? >> yeah, i just wanted to thank mr. grasielli, the chief operating officer for the school district. i know the ten years i was on the school board, the cleaning up of the fiscal health of the school district really it's like night and day compared to 10, 15 years ago in the school district. but i think this is a great way be -- approving this is a great way to continue that amazing partnership between the city and the school district. >> thank you, supervisor mar. could i have a motion to send this item forward? >> so moved. >> we can take it without objection. [gavel] >> madam clerk, can you call item 16, please? >> item 16, resolution authorizing the department of public health to submit an application to the metropolitan transportation commission for up to $990,000 in the active transportation program.
4:09 pm
>> good morning, supervisors. patricia irwin with department of public health and as noted, i'm here requesting your approval of a resolution to submit a grant application on behalf of the san francisco safe routes to school program to the active transportation program of the metropolitan transportation committee -- commission. as you ma recall, this program safe routes to school promotes safer, healthier and more fun ways to get to school such as walking, biking, car pooling, and active transportation. mtc is requiring local agencies to submit a resolution as part of the grant application package. if funded, department of public health will provide leadership and evaluation to implement an innovative pilot proposal for school years 15, 16 and 16-17 for a total of $990,000. the proposal includes partnering with san francisco unified school district, sf environment and sfpd on

[gavel] >> yeah, i move approval. i'd like to be added as a co-sponsor of this as well. thank you for the great work to make our streets safer for kids and families as they go to school. >> okay. and we can take that without objection.

4:11 pm
john updike, director real estate still. this item is 258a laguna honda boulevard, [speaker not understood]. under prior ownership, ownership [speaker not understood] simply self-renewing leases. i have the ability to execute those within certain parameters and so within the administrative code we have taken care of that until now when we have a new owner who desired a longer term agreement, we thought that was also beneficial to the city. and, so, we have now before you this five-year lease with a renewal option for another five years and as a result of negotiations we're actually decreasing the rent of office space, which i find startling. and i'm very pleased to bring you a deal that has the rent rising from $3500 a month to
4:12 pm
about $39 50 a month in year five ~. that's 23 28 square foot a year ~ and i mentioned what the rates are currently so you know where we stand from a market perspective. the increaseses are set at 3% per year, so, this gives some fiscal stability to the public defenders office's budget and certainly going forward five years from now. and then the market reset is at 95% of fair market rent upon renewal. this is to allow them to serve the juvenile justice facility just down the street on woodside. so, happy to answer any questions you might have about this. >> thank you, mr. updike. seeing no questions, mr. rose, can we go to your report, please? >> yes, mr. chairman and supervisor mar. on page 63 we report that the rent will increase by 3% per year for the last four lease years under the proposed five-year lease. and janitorial serve is ~
4:13 pm
services will increase 5% per year. it's shown on table 3. the public defender will pay a total [speaker not understood] over the five years for the 1800 square feet of office space. we recommend that you approve the resolution. >> okay, thank you, mr. rose. we'll open this up to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item 17? seeing none, public comment is closed. [gavel] >> so move approval. congratulations at reducing rent for the first time i've ever seen. >> thank you. we can take that without objection.

4:14 pm
commission. we are the ones who license free artists on locations designated by the board of supervisors. the street artists pay fees for the examination of their fares -- of their wares [speaker not understood]. the police code specifically article 24 regulating street artists does not expressly exempt honorably discharged veterans from these fees. now, this proposed ordinance, as you just heard, would require the arts commission's director of cultural affairs or his or her designee to waive the street artist fees for honorably discharged veterans upon proof of honorable discharge. and in addition, it would
4:15 pm
require the granting of refund to discharge veterans who file a refund claim on or before [speaker not understood] for any street artist fees they paid between january 1st, 2009, and july 1, 2014. the whole point of this ordinance is that it would be consistent with california state law, specifically california business and professions code section 16 001.7, effective january 1st, 2009, which prohibits government entities from charging certain business license fees to honorably discharged veterans ~. you should know that the arts commission has already issued refunds to honorably discharged veterans for fiscal year 2013-14 so this proposed
4:16 pm
ordinance before you would allow refunds for fees paid earlier to january 1st, 2009. and, again, i can't overemphasize the fact that it would be consistent with state law. >> okay, thank you very much. no questions, there's no budget analyst report here. so, we'll move on to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item 18? seeing none, public comment is closed.

4:28 pm
at van ness and mission and, actually, i believe we need to tee up -- there we go, thank you. just currently owned by good will. our partner in this venture related to california would be the acquiring agent of the property and there would be a subsequent transaction between related and the city. we'll get into the transaction details a bit later, but i want to give you the overall context of why the city wants to move forward with this and why this is an important project. it's a partnership. a public private partnership, not perhaps the most classic sense, but nonetheless it is a privately delivered project that fulfills the city's space needs well into this coming century. it also is a mixed use development. and mr. woody will speak to that if a moment as well and why this is important to related. out of this will will come an
4:29 pm
office building that suits the city's needs a we try to consolidate our presence in the civic center and try to stabilize our cost, but most importantly this provides efficiency of city operations and provides efficiency of service to our constituents. so, i'll speak to that briefly. this is a consolidation of staff out of number of properties, 30 van ness, portions of 1650 mission, portions of 1660 mission, 1680 mission, and 1145-55 market street. this provides proximity to transit. so, it's great to have public services on this property. as you know, we have a strong foothold on the block at 1 south van ness at the corner of van ness and market that strengthens the foothold of city services. most importantly it provides a
4:30 pm
robust one-stop permit center that we have long sought in this organization. it's not just dbi and planning. if you can imagine a permit the city issues, it will be issued from this location. constituents will go to one address and not be shipped around the civic center trying to figure out which office they need to go to. we will service them here. and service them quicker. additionally with dhr currently located at 1 south van ness, there is a training element as part of the space plan for this location, but also it's an opportunity to consolidate our other employee services, retirement and health services, creating a one-stop city employee location as well. so, that's the overall strategy that we have been looking to accomplish for many years. we think this is one of
